you. jon: we still have debt deadlock on capitol hill with the default deadline just eight days away now. congressional leaders are still struggling to hammer out some kind of a deal, one that would raise the limit on our nation's credit card while cutting trillions of dollars in spending. house speaker john boehner may unveil his own bill today. harry reid said it would be a nonstarter. wendell goler is live on the north lawn with more. >> reporter: speaker boehner's plan would take the spending cuts agreed to before talks with vice joe biden broke down and raise the debt ceiling a little less than that. it would satisfy the speakers bottom line which is cutting spending more than the debt ceiling is raids but we'd have to go through this all over again by the end of the year. the speaker said yesterday it would solve the immediate crisis. >> there is going to be a two-stage process. it's not physically possible to do all of this in one step. having said that, chris, i know the president is worried about his next election, but my god shouldn't we be worried about the country? >> rep
badly botched joke and fox news unloads on jon stewart in the feud that just won't die. media monitor is next. >>> closing arguments in the casey anthony murder trial began this morning and msnbc and fox news are taking it live, as is cnn's sister network hln. this tragic case, to me, is the most over covered trial since o.j. and i hate the way the media turned it in to a soap opera. the "new york times" media column tweeted if i were booking tv like bill maher the last person ever i would choose to be me. >> he stepped in it with these words. >> i think new jersey is more sophisticated because i'm from there. >> if it's missouri, no big deal. that's the sloping foreheads, the middle places. did i just say that aloud? >> yes. >> slow low sloping foreheads. carr got a lot of flak as a snob and he said the middle place that i come from i apologize for saying something so dumb on bill maher last night. it was a bad joke delivered badly. david carr is from minnesota. i doubt he's attempting to insult everyone who lives in the mid 'ole the country. >>> princess diana is digitally inserted
side's rhetoric squares very well with reality. let's get some perspective now from jon corzine, former democratic governor of new jersey, before that a u.s. senator and ceo of goldman sachs. currently he runs an investment firm mf global holdings limited. also carli fiorina, advisor to republican senatorial committee. also former senior campaign adviser to john mccain and before that ceo of hewlett-packard. let me start with you carly. you heard those sound bites. it seems like ending the corporate jet tax hike would be uncontroversial, but it seems like some of your fellow republicans are drawing a hard line on any revenue-raising proposals whatsoever. do you believe we can make a dent without doing that? >> i think first of all with regard to the rhetoric of millionaires and billionaires, the problem is when you look at the fine print what democrats are really talking about is raising taxes on a family that makes $250,000. and if you're a nurse and a fireman raising two kids, you don't feel very wealthy right now. so i think that's the problem. the rhetoric doesn't match the reality.

there are going to be folks on both sides. the question is, can you get enough votes? and i think jon is absolutely right. it's critically important that we raise the debt ceiling. i think, however, the president of the united states is not a freshman house republican. >> right. >> and as i said, this deal has been on the table for a long time. this problem has been on the table for a long time. i think we need the president of the united states, the leader of the free world, to step forward and lead here. and i think there will be enough bipartisan support to get a deal done. >> has he not been leading on this? i mean, with regards to his most recent conversations? >> you know, disappointingly president obama put forward a budget in february. this was his opportunity to lead, in my opinion that. budget was voted down 97-0. it tackled entitlement reform not a bit. he gave a wonderful speech in april which the congressional budget office said it couldn't score because there weren't enough specifics. the truth is, the president himself has never put a deal on the table. he's asked other

of the rest of the pack. jon huntsman, we can mention, he also has a pretty big fund-raising hall for a guy that not a lot of people know about. $4 million. we should mention half of that, though, is money he kicked in himself. he is part of a very wealthy family that owns a chemical company out there in utah. so not too surprising there. one thing we can tell you this morning is that president obama's re-election campaign, they are very proud of the fact that they have a roughly $490,000 contributors who have donated so far to the president's campaign. that is a number that they are tweeting out and getting out today. that is way more than he had back in 2007. of course, not too surprising back then. he was sort of a long shot for the white house. speaking of presidential runs. we should mention that we are getting reports and we are expecting to see thad mccarter, a congressman from michigan. he is well known up in michigan and well known in tea party circles. he is expected to file his paper work today to run for president. mccotter plays the guitar. so we might see him out on the campai

appearing stronger heading into the 2012 race than he was just a few weeks ago. we want to bring in jon karl to help weigh in on these numbers. jon, we were talking earlier on the surface it seems like a few points shift here. but given the backdrop of this economy and unemployment this is fairly dramatic. >> reporter: is pretty dramatic. and the factor seems to be the debt ceiling standoff. take a look at the numbers against mitt romney, the president has opened up a lead, a pretty significant lead you see there of 51% to 44%. the lead is even more dramatic against other other candidates. look where he was a month ago, david. mitt romney was tied with president obama. the big factor here, in fact, the only factor that has really changed is that independent voters have moved away from the republicans and towards the president. >> so, independent voters watching the debt showdown and weighing in. >> reporter:s that's exactly right. and don't like the way the republicans have been handling it. >> speaking of the republicans, you take a look at how they're stacking up with the race. and a famil

'm the senate republican whip jon kyl of arizona. by now, but americans the lawmakers are engaged in a difficult debate about the debt ceiling, the legal limit to the amount of money the federal government can borrow. the debt ceiling is currently set at a little more than $14 trillion and if the congress and the president don't reach an agreement to raise it by tuesday, the treasury secretary tells us america will no longer be able to pay its bills. the consequences of missing this deadline could be severe. it is precisely because of washington barrault's so much money, more than 40 cents out of every dollar spent. spending would have to shrink by 40% quickly. what is more, markets would likely respond, dropping in value and hurting their retirement savings of millions of americans. republicans have tried to work with democrats to avoid this result and put our country on a better path, but we need them to work with us. we start from the understanding that the reason the debt ceiling is a problem is because of runaway washington spending. republicans have been united in the belief that raising t
house? guest: mitt romney and jon huntsman, because they are the moderates in the field. mitt romney was a good governor of massachusetts. i actually think that on the whole, anyone of the plausible candidates is a real threat to the white house. unemployment is near 9%, job growth is slow, income growth is slow. the economic fundamentals shows that the white house should be worried about winning reelection next year. regardless of who is the gop nominee. host: there is a story in the politico that herman cain's top staff in iowa has resigned. guest: he also lost his new hampshire staff so that is a trend. her manner crane only reported $2.5 million raise, including a lot of seed money from his own personal fortune. the operative said he had hired, good people that know the system, looked at his campaign and decided that this was no longer of that they wanted to make. guest: i agree. herman cain was a boutique candidate. he impressed a lot of people but when push came to shove, no one wanted devoted -- wanted to vote for him. host: carolyn sacramento, thank you for waiting. caller: w
utah governor and ambassador to china jon huntsman, the most moderate of the candidates vying for the anti-romney vote. huntsman has already ruled out competing in iowa, understands new hampshire is a must-win state. >> it is absolutely central to victory. central to our pathway of success. it's a state that we can win. >> reporter: in iowa, which votes first in the presidential contest, candidates were fighting for the social conservative vote. there were long shot contenders, newt gingrich and rick santorum. >> hi, you guys. >> reporter: as well as tea party sensation michele bachmann. a recent poll has the minnesota congresswoman in a statistical dead heat with romney, while gingrich and santorum barely made a dent in the single digits. tim pawlenty also polled poorly there. the former minnesota governor raised a disappointing $4.2 million this quarter and has had no public event over the holiday weekend. but those in the bottom half of that poll can take some comfort in the fact that sometimes the early polls don't tell us that much. this time four years ago, mike huckabee
leader represented house republicans, jon kyl for senate republicans, and that vice president. they have been talking about all lot of cuts, both to discretionary and non- discretionary spending, but there the problem is that it does not seem to add at to what they would need to meet the president's requirements to get the country through the next election. that would be somewhere in the area of $2.4 trillion increase in the debt ceiling. john boehner has made it clear that for any increase in the debt ceiling, they will not need more than a one-one increased ratio. quite frankly the democrats have not agreed to that level of cuts. it looks like they will go back today, scour potential areas of saying that they have talked about, and see how much they can agree to and go from there. agree to and go from there. host: in your article from yesterday's with the headline " boehner tells conference big deal no longer operative," you said that there were criticisms for the grand bargain. he pays -- he faced opposition from eric cantor. they presented a united front before the gop conference whi
